Last week was a special day at the Montana Pre-School. The children have been working so hard in their performance to make their families proud. They also made tons of fun Thanksgiving activities. The children most importantly Practice the term “Thankful”. The children had many things to be thankful for. Family and friends but the children also mentioned that they were thankful about having food on the table. They learned to appreciate their food. Our Thanksgiving feast was not only a celebration for the children but something more meaningful to them which was appreciation.
The children drew and painted a corn yesterday. The children first observe the corn and the patterns on the corn. The children first drew the shape of the corn. The children then said that the corn had squares inside, so they drew squares on their corn. While other children said that their corn had puffy circles. The children all decided to paint their corn different colors because because they said that their corn grew in different color soil’
The children came to morning meeting mentioning the election. It was great to see how the children were so engage in this conversation. The children were able to express themselves and give their opinion to why they choose their candidate. After their debates they sat down and very quietly wrote their candidates name.

It was amazing to see how the children were to enthusiastic to vote!
